Large City of Toppenish Flag Found Along Highway 97
The city of Toppenish has its enormous American flag back after a driver found it Wednesday morning, lying on Highway 97 near the Branding Iron Restaurant.
The person who found the flag called KIT's studios first to see if anyone had called looking for the flag. KIT Producer Jack Balzer immediately called Toppenish City Hall to see if a flag was missing from the city. City officials say the large flag that flies at Pioneer Park in Toppenish had recently been taken down for repairs and a container it was in fell out of the truck earlier in the week. A driver found the flag at about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday.
The driver returned the flag to Toppenish City Hall Wednesday afternoon and it's now on its way to being repaired.
